RATES

What conference rates do you offer?

This year we are offering different conference packages:

  • Base Conference includes onsite breakout sessions, mini-workshops, general sessions and speakers and breaks.
  • Full Conference includes base-conference activities plus the AMM and MMA annual meeting lunches, opening event ticket, Thursday night event, and closing event ticket.*The Leadership Breakfast, pre-conference workshops and seminars, and any other ticketed events must be purchased separately.
  • Single Day – includes the same items as the base conference for the day that you plan to attend.
  • A la carte – Pre-Conference workshops/activities, evening events, and the Leadership Breakfast requires an additional ticket which can be purchased a la carte during registration.

Do you offer student rates?

Yes. Student rates are offered to our AMM Student Members. You can register for an AMM student membership for $30. Student rates can be found on our Registration page and apply to all registration periods.

Do you offer a special rate for session, workshop and poster presenters?

Session presenters may register at the early bird rate through July 1, 2019. After that date, contact us to learn more about registering at the same rate when prices go up for general attendees.

Can I attend just a workshop or event?

A “Workshop Only” option is available through the online registration form. Tickets may be made available to evening events following the close of online registration, if space is available.

Do you have volunteer opportunities?

We do! Volunteer opportunities range from tote bag stuffers to session and event greeters. Volunteers earn reduced or free registration by donating their time at the conference. If you’d like to volunteer, contact us at admin@midwestmuseums.org.

Do you offer a group rate?

Yes. We offer a special group rate for the Base Conference package if you register 4 or more people in a single session. *Discount will automatically be applied to total before checkout.

How do I register multiple people?

Log in to your registration, and click “Add Profile” to add an attendee to your group. Note: Each attendee requires a separate profile and payment.


PAYMENTS

Can I purchase extra event tickets for friends/family?

Yes, you may choose to purchase more than one event ticket during registration. If you are purchasing a ticket for another conference attendee, please add the ticket to their registration. This helps our organizers keep track of and communicate with individuals attending each event.

Can I pay for our registrations by check?

Yes. On the payment processing page, there are three options – credit card, e-check and manual check. Click the link for “manual check” on the upper right corner of the form to obtain manual check payment instructions.

What is an e-check?

An e-check is an electronic or digital version of a paper check. Like a paper check, an e-check requires a routing number, bank account number, and the name on the bank account.

Can I pay for registrations with a single credit card or e-check transaction?

No. Each attendee requires a separate profile and payment. You may, however, pay for all attendees with a single manual check if you choose that option.

Can I modify my registration after I have paid?

Yes. On the main page of the registration site, click “Log into my registration”. From your profile, you can make changes to your initial registration.


CANCELLATION

I can no longer attend. Can I transfer my registration to my colleague?

Yes. Notify AMM at admin@midwestmuseums.org to request a registration transfer.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

All requests for refunds must be submitted in writing to AMM at admin@midwestmuseums.org. A full refund, less a $25 processing fee, will be granted for requests made by July 1, 2019. Requests between July 2-September 1, 2019 will receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be granted for requests made after September 1, 2019. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible following the conference.
